and research and technology and we're making those investments. these are the principles that have guided us over the last 19 months. these are the principles that form the basis of the additional economic proposals that i offered this week, because even though the economy is growing again and we've added more than 750,000 private sector jobs this year, the hole in the recession left was huge. progress has been painfully slow. millions of americans are still looking for work. millions of families are struggling to pay their bills or the mortgage. these proposals are meant to both accelerate job growth in the short-term and strengthen the economy in the long-run. these proposals include a more generous permanent extension of the tax credit that go to companies for all the research and innovation that they do here in america. i have proposed that all american businesses should be allowed to write off all the investments they do in 2011. this will help small businesses upgrade their plants and equipment and will encourage large corporations to get off the sidelines and start putting their profi

, with all the republicans' talk about wanting to shrink the deficit, they would have us borrow 700 billion dollars, over the next 10 years, to give a tax cut of about $100,000 each, to folks who are already millionaires. let me be clear to mr. boehner and everybody else, we should not hold middle class tax cuts hostage any longer.

that? >> local emergency officials have confirmed for us, shep, that one person is dead. we know it's a man but don't know anything more at this point. four people actually had to be cut out of the bus. they were trapped for quite a while. at least 11 people taken to local hospitals. two of them with life threatening injuries. two others with serious injuries. many others had lesser injuries and we talked to one hospital that treated four of the children that were involved with this. they said they ranged in age from 6 to 12 and the good news is they say that group is in good condition. shep? >> good to know, back for updates, shannon bream in d.c. thank you. there have been several deadly bus crashes in recent years. back in 2007, a coach bus carrying college baseball team fell off an overpass in atlanta killing seven. the team on their way from bluffton university in ohio, you may remember, off to a tournament in florida. we're told that driver drove up and off the ramp at full speed before the bus tumbled back into the highway. in 2006, a school bus jumped a retaining wall in hu
, it turns out this is important to us. what i've said to prime minister netanyahu is that given so far the talks are moving forward in a constructive way, it makes sense to extend that moratorium so long as the talks are moving in a constructive way. because, ultimately, the way to solve these problems, is for the two sides to agree what's it going to be, israel? what's it going to be, the state of palestinian. and if you can get that agreement, then you can start constructing anything that the people of israel see fit. in undisputed areas. now, i think the politics for prime minister netanyahu are very difficult. his coalition, i think, there are a number of members of his coalition who said we don't want to continue this. and one of the things that i've said to president abbas is, you've got to show the israeli public that you are serious and constructive in these talks so that the politics for prime minister netanyahu, if he were to extend the settlements moratorium, would be a little bit easier. and, you know, one of the goals i think that i've set for myself and for my team is to
